Taiwan for the first time showed the cruise missile Hsiung Feng 2E

For a long time, the Taiwanese command hid from prying eyes the Hsiung Feng 2E cruise missile, which Western observers consider as a local modification of the American Tomahawk. However, amid the escalating confrontation with mainland China, it was decided to show her work.

For many years, the Hsiung Feng 2E was kept secret by the military and was not shown to the public until recently, despite the fact that it has been in service for more than a decade.

- says the United Daily News.

The other day, the military showed the firing of rockets from the Jiupeng base at 4 am in total darkness. The missile, after more than an hour's flight, reached its intended target.

Hsiung Feng 2E is designed to destroy ground targets. It is launched from land platforms. The parameters of the rocket are unknown, but the estimated flight range is from 300 to 1500 km, weight - 1500-1600 kg, warhead mass 200 kg, speed, most likely, subsonic. For aiming at the target, GPS and navigation using the TERCOM system (along the contours of the terrain) are used.

The estimated range of fire is sufficient to strike coastal targets in mainland China, such as major cities and military bases, fleet и aviation.

    There is information that these missiles are equipped with concrete-piercing warheads and that the main target for them is allegedly the dam of the Three Gorges reservoir. A sort of weapon of mass destruction.

    They also demonstrated kamikaze drones and sea drones. It is quite logical: to show China that the war, even in case of victory, will bring more losses than benefits.
